The month of Ramazan is a great opportunity for achieving Taqwa (devotion). Taqwa alludes to a condition of cognizance where one continually feels the nearness of his Creator, complies with His orders to achieve His pleasure, and stays away from defiance to Him, out of His dread as well as for the love of Him.

Quranic Reference

In Holy Quran, Allah Almighty depicted the individuals who fast in the sacred month of Ramadan in these words: “O you who accept, the Fasts have been urged upon you as they were urged upon those before you, so you may have Taqwa” (Quran, 2:183). From the Ayah referenced before we reasoned that the motivation behind fasting is to procure Taqwa. The nearness of Taqwa causes one to shield from submitting sins and conquer the force of weight. Fasting in Ramadan fabricates the character of Taqwa if it is done correctly. Let us take a gander at a portion of the things that a fasting individual should do, and how they are identified with the idea and soul of Taqwa during the blessed month of Ramadan.

In contrast to prayers, Zakat or charity, and Hajj, fasting is an imperceptible demonstration or type of love. Just Allah Almighty and the person who is fasting know whether the individual is fasting or not. A fasting individual’s spirit encounters a motivating feeling of Taqwa when on a long sweltering summer Ramadan day his throat is dry, the stomach is groaning, nobody is watching him, but then he swears off taking a couple of tastes of water or a couple of lumps of nourishment. The fasting individual has made this dedication to Allah and needs to monitor the immaculateness of fast for Allah. Consequently, fasting trains earnestness and it encourages an individual to figure out how to live by the standards of their confidence in any case whether others know it or not. This is the quintessence of Taqwa.


With surrendering nourishment and drink, the fasting individual should likewise dependably regard all restrictions and play out all obligations recommended by Allah (SWT) and Holy Prophet (PBUH). The Holy Prophet (SAW) said on one event: “Whoever doesn’t surrender vain discourse and underhandedness activities, Allah isn’t needing his fasting.” Therefore Ramadan is a chance to achieve Taqwa, for those whom Allah Almighty advisers for accomplishing Taqwa. Fasting in Ramadan is an inspiration to carry out beneficial things and demonstrations of love since individuals are slanted towards goodness. We would step up to carry out beneficial things, contend with each other in doing great, avoid overwhelming sins, overlook fulfilling the wants of the tissue, and hold onto the extraordinary chance of Ramadan to accomplish Taqwa.

Say “No” To Things

During fasting, we figure out how to state “no” to things that are positively allowable yet are prohibited during fasting. At the point when we figure out how to state “no” to that which is commonly reasonable then we can without much of a stretch control ourselves to maintain a strategic distance from that which is taboo. Fasting likewise shows compassion and empathy, and it removes a portion of our self-centeredness. This is the genuine soul of Taqwa. May Allah gives us the endowments and prizes of this Holy month of Ramadan, and let us increment our Taqwa in Ramadan and after the long stretch of Ramadan.
